Laguna Beach Engagement : Mike + Monique

Photography

It’s been said that women possess certain characteristics that can make a man stop in his tracks and notice–quite possibly–she sparkles. Not literally, but in this invisible way that draws him into her gravitational pull and circle her with delight and intrigue. Monique is one of those girls. Just ask Mike.

They were introduced by friends out one night while in Arizona. Monique chatted with Mike and with every syllable, she called into a different part of Mike’s soul. Yes, this girl sparkled. When she asked if he’d like to join her the following day for a sporting event, he casually agreed. You like sports, don’t you, she queried. He simply responded yes and then coyly smiled because she had no idea he was a professional baseball player. Monique and Mike hung out the following day. And the following day. And followed the same pattern until they found themselves on a private tour of the Vatican months later when Mike dropped to his knee and proposed to Monique. Totally befitting, he gave the girl who sparkled a very sparkly ring.

Mike and Monique are marrying this July at the St. Regis Monarch Beach and I’m incredibly excited to work with them and Michelle of Details Details for a splendid day ringing in Independence Day. Yes, they’re marrying on the 4th of July and we expect a lot of sparks to fly! I had a blast shooting their Laguna Beach engagement session and I can’t wait to hang out again soon…

I wish the Good Lord would’ve blessed me with legs like Monique’s. F’real.

Only these two could make a utility shack in Laguna Beach look good…

Rawr.

That’s riiiight…Mike can bring his a-game to working it for photos as well as on the baseball field…

Then things got a little steamy…

Mike, you’ve never looked better than with Monique in your life! 😉
